Fellowship for Completion of Degree

Fellowships for students and doctoral students about to finish their degrees

Through financial support from the DAAD, scholarships can be awarded to students who have insufficient funds so that they can successfully complete their studies or doctoral studies.

International students and international doctoral candidates who are in the final phase of their studies or doctoral thesis are eligible to apply for the scholarship*). German citizens may NOT apply for this scholarship. The scholarship will generally be awarded for the duration of 3-5 months (depending on the application situation) and cannot be extended.
